A great all-round tour for divers with slightly more experience.

This safari provides you with some of the best diving in the Red Sea offering challenging dives, big drop offs, beautiful coral walls and plenty of large fish. In the Fury Shoals system, the Sha’ab Claudio captivates divers and enthrals photographers with its shallow swim-through system, perfect for leisurely exploration. With five entrances and exits and shallow in depth, you’re never ‘lost’ and can just enjoy the shafts of light dancing through the caverns. Rays, nudibranchs, large Napoleon wrasse and morays are all frequently spotted here; you may even see a white tip reef shark or turtle pass by. Sha’ab Sataya is situated at the very south of Fury Shoals; this huge natural lagoon is formed by a massive reef (sha’ab) rising from the depths. The fame of Sataya is its steep drop offs along with pelagic sightings and protected pinnacles smothered in soft and hard corals. But the real stars can be the huge pods of spinner dolphins that frequent here, meaning Sataya has become the ‘Dolphin House’ of Hamata. Itinerary highlights include: Elphinstone reef: A Red Sea legend. One of the most beautiful reefs, with its north and south plateau’s covered in hard and soft corals and visiting pelagic, this truly is an awesome reef. Daedalus: About 180 km south of the Brother Islands you’ll find Daedalus Reef, this huge reef is also part of the Marine Park. It’s a large oval reef with a lighthouse and is the furthest offshore reef in the Egyptian Red Sea. The Reef is surrounded by a sheer wall and strong currents allowing for fantastic drift diving.

World-renowned dive sites make this memorable liveaboard safari unique. Also the fish wealth is large in St. John's and here you can meet the otherwise rare buffalo-headed parrotfish. A look into the blue water can be highly worthwhile: big fish such as sharks, barracudas, or swarms of mackerel and tuna fish are not uncommon here. With luck you can also find mantas and dolphins.

Zabargad: A top dive site that stands out for its versatility. Here you can dive along cliff faces, float over drop-offs, experience the open-water feeling at the demolished edges, circle coral towers in the protected flat area and explore inlets, watch fish or simply admire this unique coral garden as you pass by. On the north side lies a nameless wreck. The 70 m long ship lies at 24 m depth. The entire rear impresses with its intact superstructure stairs, railing, davits, to portholes, hatches and the bridge make it a picture book wreck. Rocky Island: Rocky Island is a legendary dive site that makes every diver's heart beat faster. The fringing reef surrounding the entire island promotes the growth of all possible life forms. The reef walls are full of the most beautiful soft corals, gorgonians, sponges, black and fan corals. Due to its exposed location and the small reef extent, Rocky Island is a very lively reef. Reef sharks, especially gray reef sharks and silver tip sharks can be seen in the open water and maybe even mantas and dolphins. St. John's Reef: All of its dive sites are very close to each other, so it's easy to travel from one dive site to another on a liveaboard dive. St. John's offers a lot of variety in its dives: steep walls, tunnels, caves and stunning hard-coral formations. One of these dives (St. John`s Caves or Umm Kharalim) is truly unique and is a photographer's sky with rays of light shimmering through small tunnels.
